5G RAN Slicing shapes business growth
5G has been widely deployed and it now presents tremendous potential for service providers to monetize new services for consumers and enterprises. Network slicing is a key enabler for unlocking opportunities through service differentiation and guaranteed performance. Using an end-to-end approach, Ericsson has developed the most complete network slicing portfolio including 5G RAN slicing for automated and fast service delivery of new and innovative 5G use cases.
What is 5G RAN Slicing?
Ericsson 5G RAN Slicing is a software solution built on existing 5G radio access networks that strengthens end-to-end network slicing support. It is designed to secure dynamic radio resource allocation and prioritization for different slices to fulfill even the most demanding service-level agreements.
Benefits of 5G RAN Slicing
5G RAN Slicing presents the opportunity to monetize 5G investments by providing service differentiation to open new segments. Service providers can use 5G RAN Slicing to add greater degrees of flexibility and versatility to their 5G networks. They can enable new and differentiated 5G use cases, with short time to market and improved total cost of ownership, to drive innovation in sectors as diverse as smart manufacturing, health care, and online gaming.
About the technology
Ericsson 5G RAN Slicing offers service providers the differentiation and guaranteed performance needed to monetize 5G investments. The innovative solution has been developed to strengthen end-to-end network slicing support for resource management and orchestration in radio access network. As a result, it dynamically optimizes allocation and prioritization of radio resources across different slices for guaranteed fulfillment of service-level agreements (SLAs).
Built on Ericsson radio expertise, and a scalable and flexible architecture, this software solution will enable service providers to meet growing demands for areas like enhanced mobile broadband, private networks, mission-critical communication, and critical IoT.
